Birmingham Magician at Alrewas Hayes Wedding

First I was booked for mix and mingle magic when the guests arrived from the church at Dunstall. This is the perfect time for magic, as guests often get lost en route (yes even with Sat Navs). They therefore arrive over quite some time, leaving the first arrivers easily bored. It also acts as a great ice breaker for the guests that havent met before. There was also a fabulous Saxophonist/singer who was brilliant.

I whizzed round the garden area on what was the last official day of the sumer , entertaining the guests with close up magic.

It was a big bonus and lovely surprsie to see that my good friend Stuart James was teh photographer. Ive worked with Stuart ( and also his brotehr and Dad many tmes) and hes fabulous. The picture will go below once i get them. His work speaks for itself!! His website can be found here https://www.stuartjamesphoto.co.uk/

 

It was then round the tables during the gaps between the courses of the wedding breakfast, doing a mini show at each table. The pictures above show the reactions of the guests.Finally it was time for my special bride and groom tricks

It was lovely to get the following review within a few days from Toni

The couple got married at teh beautiful church opposite, before having an amzing procession across the road to reach the venue. This was lead by an amzing Brass quartet who marched the guests across. They then went down to the field area where outside ceremonies take place, for the recpetion drinks.The band continued to play and I walked aorund the guests perfroming mix and mingle magic. After several pints of cold water as I went, it was then time to perfrom my Special Tricks for the happy couple. Aimee’s face says it all!!

Firstly I performed mix and mingle magic in the lovely garden area whilst the photographs were taken. This is an excellent time for me to perform magic and act as an Ice breaker for the two sets of guests . It was a loveoy warm summers day and the drinks reception was a lot of fun.

Secondly it was then perfroming table magic in and around the meal, between courses etc. This gives every single person at the wedding a chance to see some amazing magic at ther table. One tabe in particular loved the magic and the photos can be seen above.

Finally it was time to perfrom my special tricks for the bride and groom at the Top Table. This involves tricks that only the Bride and Groom get, and leaves them with mementoes for them to keep to remind them of their special day.

Hogarths Magic with Owen Strickland today for Leona and Marks Wedding. The couple booked me after meeting me at the Wedding Fayre at the Venue back in May. I know when meeting them it would be a fun wedding. I was not disappointed!!

The booked me to perform during the lull between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. This is a very popular booking as it is a part of the day where guests can easily get bored and frustrated. Having me go round the tables and to the guests who have gone to the bar or outside, can reinvigorate them and keep the mood going.

The weather had been iffy at best all weekend, but thankfully it was a warm and dry day. It meant guests were free to go outside and enjoy some magic in the sunshine. I want round both inside and outside performing for a couple of hours, and you can see some of the reactions that I got. I also had time to do my Special Tricks for the Bride and Groom, one inside and one outside.

It was genuinely a fun wedding and a lovely end to a busy weekend.

Birmingham Magician at Mythe Barn

Birmingham Magician at Mythe Barn. Today I was at Mythe Barn for Mitch and Jess’s epic wedding day.

The father of the Groom Mark booked me after seeing me at another wedding. He booked me for my platinum package, which is by far my most popular package.

This meant I performed mix and mingle magic after the ceremony, and then table magic between the courses. I was also booked as a surprise for Mitch, who is a big magic fan. This meant I had chance to do my gag where I pretend to be a waiter and meet the couples drink order up when they come out of the ceremony. Mitch’s face when i told him the venue had “run out of stella” was picture, and when he realised i was a magician it was a great moment.

Its true that a picture paints a thousand words.

It was generally quite a young wedding, which meant it was extra fun as everyone really got into the spirit of the day. It also meant  I had some amazing reactions.

It was glorious hot July Day, and a nice change from the poor weather that this summer has generally seen. Each table had some amazing magic and the reactions can be seen from the photos above. Before I left there was just time to do my Special Tricks for the Bride and Groom, which again went down great. It was also lovely to see a couple from a wedding years ago, who remembered me.

Warwick House Magician Owen Strickland

Warwick House Magician Owen Strickland

Warwick House Magician Owen Strickland at the venue twice in a few days. Sometimes its strange in the Wedding Business that you can be at the same venue twice in a matter of days. This week was such a time!

I was there on Sunday for Dean and Claire’s Special Day. It was a glorious sunny day and I was booked to perform mix and mingle magic during the drinks reception. This enables me to go around the garden and perform magic whilst the all important photographs were taken by the fab Marc Osbourne Photography. This is such a good time to perform, as the two sides if the family have maybe not met before. It therefore can act as a really good Ice Breaker and gets guests talking to each other.

I still had time to perform my special Bride and Groom Tricks for Claire and Dean.

Then on Wednesday I was back again for the wedding of Chris and Shab. They had booked me after finding my flyer in the goodie bag handed out by the venue to all couples.Again they booked me to perform in the drinks reception prior to the breakfast. It was again a hot and sunny day, and there haven’t been a huge amount of those this summer!

Staffordshire Magician at Aston Marina where I am the recommended supplier.

Today I was delighted to be back at Aston marina for Nicola and Tom’s Special Day. The couple met me at the Venues Open Day last year and booked me there and then. Wedding Fayres and Open Days are the perfect opportunity for couples to see what I can do in person. They get a feel for both my magic and performing style. With any entertainment this is always better than booking via a website.

The couple booked me to perform between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. I refer to this as the “lull” as its generally a lull in proceedings. Its a great time to have me perfrom magic. Its even more of a good idea when its a venue where there is no accommodation for guests to go and check in. This is the case with Aston Marina. This venue grows from strength to strength. It has an amazingly friendly team managed by Nicky. After being a finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards they went one better to win the Best Venue in the Bridebook Awards.

Tom and nicola were great fun as were there guests. The photographer was Clara Lou Photography. It was my first wedding with her, but it was clear she knew how to get the best out of guests. 

After going round the guests inside the Boathouse I joint Clara and the couple outside where smoke bombs were aplenty. I then dod my special tricks for the two in glorious sunshine. The photos above speak for themselves.

Magician in Warwickshire Owen Strickland was ay Warwick House today. Dean and Claire had their Special day at the stunning Warwick House.

The couple booked me as I am luckily a recommended supplier at the venue. This means every couple that books a wedding at the venue gets a goody bag. Inside this I put a flyer and a small gift for them, along with the other recommended suppliers.

Dean booked me to perform mix and mingle magic. This was in the garden area after the ceremony and before the Wedding Breakfast. Thankfully it was a scorching hot day and the weather didn’t get in the way. Photographer Marc Osbourne was on hand to capture the photos and managed to get some of me as I worked my way around the garden.

As the proceeding were going straight into speeches when they sat down for the meal, I took the opportunity to do my special bride and groom trick for them in the sun. Marc was on the roof by this point to take some group shots, so hopefully Ill have an “aerial shot” to show for it.

Birmingham Magician At Hogarths today for the wedding of Andrea and Jake.

The couple booked me earlier in the year at the venues Open Day.

First the couple booked me for mix and mingle magic after the ceremony. A nice change for this wedding though. They wanted guests to stay down at the beautiful island area where the ceremony takes place. Unbelievable I had never been down to the island, as usually everyone returns to the hotel. However I have really missed out, because its beautiful down there.This meant I was going round the Island area and performing for the guests in small groups. .The weather just about held out as their had been a lot of rain this week. Thankfully it passed just in time and it actually ended up quite a warm day.

Then it was around the tables between courses during the wedding breakfast. Again this involves doing a small show at each table. The advantage of this is that everyone at the wedding gets to see me perform. Because Andrea and Jake booked my Platinum Package, the fact that they did speeches before the food was served made no difference. I dipped out f the room as they happened, before returning to do the tables.

Finally it was my trade mark special tricks for the bride and groom.

Bordesley Park Magician Owen Strickland

Bordesley Park Magician Owen Strickland was back at the venue again today for the scorching hot wedding of Zoe and Dan.

The couple booked me after meeting me at an open day at the venue last year. As the Bordesley park recommended supplier I exhibit at all the open days (where Im available ) and appear in the brochure. Exhibiting at the open days is a brilliant opportunity to show coupes what I can add to their day. There was a funny incident with Zoe’s mum at the o[en day, that gets mentioned a lot when we have been speaking in the last 12 months. Lets just say she got rather “excited” when watching me perform for them.

Today was the scorching hot day we have been waiting all June for. The car temp said 34 degrees as I pulled up, and not surprisingly the marquee side was taken down. This left guests an uninterrupted view of the amazing Worcestershire Countryside.

The Lull

Zoe and Dan booked me to perform mix and mingle magic during the “lull”. This is the time between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. This is really popular at Bordesley, as there is no accommodation for guests to go to. That means they can get a little bored after the meal waiting for the evening guests to arrive. Therefore having me go round and entertain to small groups at a time,  helps them pass the time. As ever it was finally time for me to perform my special Bride and Groom trick for the happy couple. Zoe’s face says it all.

It was a double bonus today as when I got there I realised Tom Humphries Photographer was the official photographer for the day. Having done numerous wedding fayres with Tom it was nice to finally do a wedding with him. also there was Kev from Music Wedding Video. I managed to sneak a guest appearance in his last video at Penfrell Hall and can’t wait to see what his vids of today will look like.
